The Pump Room

Ashley Page (2005)

When Ashley Page unleashed this highly charged work for two couples, critics and audiences were unanimous in their praise. Set to a dynamic Nine Inch Nails remix by the celebrated master of electronica Aphex Twin and building to a stunning climax, this edgy and stylish work pulsates from the moment the curtain is raised and doesn’t pause for breath. 


Choreography: Ashley Page
Music: Nine Inch Nails / Aphex Twin
